This is an antique porcelain bisque head doll made in Germany by William Goebel. It is marked on the back of the head. She has dress, pantaloons, stockings, and both shoes.
The dress definitely shows age. Her head moves all the way around. The arms are made of paper mache?
It has a composition jointed body. Her legs and arms are jointed and only her head is made of porcelain. Her knees are not jointed. She dates around the early to late 1920's and is quite rare.
She has brown hair with original white ribbon. Her mouth is slightly open and you can see her teeth.
Her mold number is 110. Please contact me with any questions you may have and or do some research on your own. Below is the what I found on William Goebel. Franz Detleff Goebel and his son William Goebel founded their porcelain factory Wilhelmsfeld in 1876, located in Oeslau, Thüringia, Germany to produce porcelain and earthenware objects.By 1879 the company was known as F & W Goebel. Early F & W Goebel objects were marked with a triangle and half moon symbol with or without a two digit mold number.
By 1893 the company was owned solely by William, who changed the name to William Goebel Porzellanfabrik which is also when Goebel began producing fine bisque dolls of all kinds; small all bisque dolls, bisque Dolly Face shoulder or socket heads on kid or composition jointed bodies, bent limb character Baby dolls, half dolls, bathing beauties, ballerinas and Bécassine dolls. After 1900 Goebel began using the crown above the WG initials mark, see below. Goebel is probably best known today for their Hummel figurines and other porcelain objects.
